A big part of the Liverpool plans next season is rebuilding the team and Jürgen Klopp is making the right moves to ensure the process is completed. The German coach's main goal in this summer transfer window is rejuvenating the midfield and most of the signings and transfers linked with the Anfield team are proof of that.

In this sense, Liverpool have already completed the arrivals of Alexis Mac Allister  and Dominik Szobozslai as main actors in the new team’s midfield, as they even took the numbers 10 and 8 for their Red shirts, granting they are accepting the challenge of arriving to Anfield to become Liverpool legends and players who defend Liverpool colors for many years.

This rejuvenation of the midfield could see how some veteran players lose room in the team, and that is the case of Thiago Alcantara or Jordan Henderson, who recently has been linked with the Saudi team Al Ettifaq, now coached by the Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard. Henderson's role in the team has been crucial for Klopp, but the German coach could be considering another option to start replacing Henderson in the team.

The player versatility grants his potential Liverpool success

According to the British media, Jürgen Klopp would appreciate the evolution and versatility of the young player Curtis Jones to be a potential Henderson replacement. The English wonderkid was able to show his talent in several positions last season and he could be one one the principal men to be in the line up with Mac Allister and Szobozslai, which could drastically reduce the minutes of play for Henderson.
